What we do and why

Daisy Drury

Head of Producing

Straight out of university I started working on arts documentaries for the South Bank Show but soon realised I was more interested in helping make the art rather than reviewing it.  After short stints as a presenter in the Millennium Dome Experience, a charity worker in Ghana and an usher at the Royal Opera House I joined the Young Vic as a fundraiser during its awe-inspiring Capital Campaign years.  I left to become Head of Fundraising at Circus Space (now the National Centre for Circus Arts) in 2005.  In 2010 I established the Circus Development Department at NCCA and as Director of Circus Development I ran a programme of support and professional department for the UK's rapidly growing circus arts sector.  Highlights include running 6 week programme to train 42 deaf and disabled artists for the Opening Ceremony of the Paralympic Games in 2012 and Depart, a site-specific aerial and dance show which toured to cemeteries across the UK in 2016.
